SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Scott H. Silverman, one of the co-founders of Veterans Navigation Center, recently appeared on KUSI's Good Evening San Diego Sunday to tell KUSI’s Lindsey Fukano about the many challenges Veterans face during the transition from active-duty to civilian life, including rom mental health to addiction issues, as well as gaining new employment.
Per KUSI'S Website, "...that’s where The Veterans Navigation Center comes in. The non-profit works to connect veterans to case managers familiar with the complex landscape of veteran benefits, and assists them in obtaining resources.
San Diego is known to be the fourth-largest city in the nation for biggest veteran population, and over half of our San Diego veterans are without insurance.
